Local Motors will premiere a mid-model refresh of the car after a live demonstration of the three-phased, micro-manufacturing process on the main show floor. Phase 1 includes 3D-printing the vehicle structure, which takes approximately 40 hours of continuous printing on a Big Area Additive Manufacturing machine. During Phase 2, the vehicle is milled. During Phase 3, the final phase of the process, the car is then rapidly assembled. Attendees will be able to ride in the made-from-scratch automobile on the Shell Innovation Track located in the Technology Showcase in Hall E starting on Monday, January 12, 2015. The Shell Innovation Track, sponsored by Shell Oil Company (shell.com), will be the launch pad for vehicle demonstrations, student competitions and other industry exhibits.

Rosen Collection Now–February 15, 2015 Each of the works in Suspended Moments: Photographs from the David S. Rosen Collection offer insights into an interior world—featuring photographs of children at various stages, particularly those difficult years that chart the transition from childhood to adulthood. Most of the selected images are very closely related to the research interests of the collector, Dr. David S. Rosen, who was a physician on the staff of the University of Michigan Medical School, and a pediatrician with a specialization in adolescent medicine. The exhibition features the works of photographers known for their images of childhood, such as Sally Mann, Dawoud Bey, and Helen Levitt, and also includes photographs taken by Dr. Rosen himself. Other images on view examine the doctor’s vision as a collector, in works by noted landscape and still life photographers such as Ansel Adams, Michael Kenna, Howard Bond, and Billie Mercer. Suspended Moments features 26 of more than 150 photographic works that were added to UMMA’s collection through Dr. Rosen’s bequest in 2013. Sally Mann, Untitled (Julie, John and the Dollhouse, from At Twelve: Portraits of Young Women, 1984, Platinum-palladium print, UMMA, Gift from the Collection of David S. Rosen MD, MPH, 2013/2.159 Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the University of Michigan Health System. Exhibitions Fred Tomaselli: The Times Now–January 25, 2015 Even in our digital age of constant information, the rhythmic cycle of the daily newspaper is still a central form of organizing the world around us. The paper’s front page records in the present tense what will eventually become history. It orients our attention to pressing actions, be they individual, political, or natural, that over time repeat and rearrange into patterns around common human motivations. Fred Tomaselli‘s The Times traffics in these patterns, reflecting and reinventing them through complexly layered collages superimposed on recent cover stories in The New York Times. The collages surface unseen connections, rearrange realities, and reveal relationships of images and ideas across time and space. Tomaselli uses images within the familiar grid of the front page as portals, overwriting and manipulating the supposed objective reality of the newspaper with his completely subjective surreality. His interventions play against the detachment of journalistic forms, inserting emotion, fantasy, and absurdity to counterpoint or underscore the original narrative. Tomaselli says these works “freeze time,” trapping inherently ephemeral events and images like flies in amber. But in aggregate this act also reimagines time, linking images and actions of a chosen day to their counterparts in the past and in some projected future. The Times grew from Tomaselli’s own doodlings of personal commentary while reading, eventually spurring him to marry his “news junkie” habit with his studio practice. The series runs the gamut from hard-edged abstraction to hallucinatory pattern play, and engages in a dialogue with art historical imagery and themes, refracted through present-day news images. Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Department of American Culture, Department of the History of Art, Institute for the Humanities, and Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design. www.olympiaentertainment.com Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! JANUARY 2015 15 Thursday SB Bruce Bruce.

The show, which had a sellout performance during its last engagement at the City Theatre, is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom. Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! is more than just the book. After beginning in Paris in 2007, Men are From Mars– Women are From Venus LIVE! has been seen by more than one million people around Europe. It debuted in the United States in February 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina and will be playing to audiences around the United States and Canada throughout the year. This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! Starring in this theatrical comedy is Peter Story. Peter has appeared in primetime shows on all three major networks--some of his favorite credits include CSI (directed by Quentin Tarantino), Without a Trace, Ugly Betty and recurring roles on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and Rob Lowe’s The Lyon’s Den. He stars opposite Steve Guttenberg in the cheesy horror film, Cornered, and can be seen opposite Weed’s Elizabeth Perkins in the hilarious short, Le Chat Est Mort. He is a proud alum of the New Harmony Project and an avid storyteller with The Moth. Peter's story of how he and his wife won a dream wedding competition was just featured nationally on NPR’s The Moth Radio Hour, a show featuring the country's best storytellers. Commenting on the show, Peter said, “It's a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment.” When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. Since being published in 1992, John Gray’s Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, exploring the differences between the sexes, has sold in excess of 50 million copies, been translated into 40 different languages and is one of the most recognizable titles in the world. Gray has written 17 books and become one of the most trusted relationship authors today, appearing on the national lecture circuit and on such TV shows as Good Morning America, Oprah and Larry King Live. Producer, St. Louis based Emery Entertainment has produced or promoted thousands of events around the globe, including superstar attractions Blue Man Group, David Copperfield and James Taylor. The talented team assembled for this production continues with the award winning playwright Eric Coble, direction by Broadway veteran Mindy Cooper, and animation & video production by the talented animators at Bazillion Productions. Big Sound. Up Close. In this intimate setting, up to 2,400 fans can get close to their favorite entertainers, creating the most intense concert experience possible for fans and artists alike.

Clements Library Collection Now–January 18, 2015 Drawn from the extensive holdings of the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan (U-M), this exhibition illustrates the rich history of the city of Detroit through maps, letters, prints, and photographs. From its beginnings as a French outpost to its emergence as a manufacturing powerhouse based on the automobile at the end of the nineteenth century, the exhibition will focus on the city's growth, its people, and its legacy. The exhibition is part of the U-M Collections Collaborations series, coorganized by and presented at UMMA and designed to showcase the renowned and diverse collections at the University of Michigan. The U-M Collections Collaborations series is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Edward Walsh, View of Detroit and the Straits, taken from the Huron Church, 1804, Courtesy of the William L. Clements Library Exhibitions Reductive Minimalism: Women Artists in Dialogue, 1960-2014 October 4, 2014–January 25, 2015 Nearly fifty years after its heyday, Minimalism is enjoying a resurgence of critical attention, though much of the focus continues to be on male artists or on a small number of women sculptors. Reductive Minimalism: Women Artists in Dialogue, 1960-2014 offers a fresh perspective on the movement and its evolution, bringing together formative works from two generations of women Minimalist painters to examine and celebrate the dialogue between them. Minimalism was born in the late 1950s as a reaction to the perceived hubris and theatricality of Abstract Expressionism. But though its most prominent, mostly male, practitioners favored an aesthetic of clean geometry and essential forms, the hubris remained—in oversized works with grandiose themes. Women Minimalist painters, however, took a more restrained or reductive approach, one more intimate in scale, more personal in narrative, and more open-ended in its experimentation with pure surface, color, and texture. Many of these women—Agnes Martin and Mary Corse among them—worked outside the New York art world and outside the critical discourse that would have offered them support and recognition. Gender politics, though not necessarily the impetus for their work, played a role in the circumstances of where and how they practiced. In spite of their relative isolation, their work had a profound influence on the current generation of women minimalist painters—including Tauba Auerbach and R.H. Quaytman—who have global exposure and who are celebrated in a varied and robust critical environment. In the gallery, Reductive Minimalism traces the conversation between these two generations in an installation of nine pairs of paintings, to reveal the call-and-response of their artistic symbiosis.

From early pioneers to contemporary designers, this exhibition features some of the most influential artists throughout five eras of game technology. The exhibition focuses on the interplay of graphics, technology, and storytelling through a variety of popular games for 20 gaming systems ranging from the Atari VCS to PlayStation 3. In the 40 years since the introduction of the first home video game, the field has attracted exceptional artistic talent. A combination of traditional art forms—painting, writing, sculpture, music, storytelling, and cinematography—video games provide artists with a previously unprecedented method of communicating with and engaging audiences. Developments in hardware and software, as well as the advent of the Internet, have given artists an ever-widening palette of tools with which to create. Presenting the games through still images and video footage, the exhibition sheds light on the prevalent and increasing nature of this medium within modern society. In addition, the galleries will include video interviews with 20 developers and artists, demonstrations in the advancements of mechanics in game development, and historic game consoles. Five featured games, one from each era, are playable on larger-than-life screens in the exhibition space. These games include Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros., The Secret of Monkey Island, Myst, and Flower.

The C.F. Foun- Graphics Gallery dation in Atlanta supports the museum's traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The photographs of James Perry Walker tap an emotional key, giving witness to a deep faith. Growing up in Marshall County, Mississippi in the 1950s and 1960s, Walker witnessed life in an isolated, impoverished, and rural community. Following his graduation from college, he spent the summer of 1967 working in Marshall County as a teacher at Gatewood Baptist Church, whose pastor was the Reverend Louis Cole. One fall morning Walker attended a revival service at Gatewood and experienced a sermon unlike any he had heard before. He moved away shortly afterward, but the memory of that sermon stayed with him. Nearly a decade later, Walker began a six-year project to produce a photographic essay about Reverend Cole and his congregation. He spent countless hours with the preacher at church and at his home. In addition, Walker met with and photographed members of the congregation, with whom he became friends. This exhibition will also serve as a tribute to the artist who passed away earlier this year.
